Evicted 30-Year-Old Michael Rotondo Finally Moves Out Of Family Home

You've probably heard about 30-year-old Michael Rotondo, who was sued by his parents after flat-out refusing to give up the good life and leave the family home in Syracuse, New York. Well, now he's finally moving out - his rent-free existence is no more.

The senior Rotondos had given him start-up cash, countless verbal warnings and even five written ones, but it was no use - so they brought out the big guns and got the courts involved.

Millennials really do get a bad rep, don't we? Here we are, working shitty jobs with poor pay, trying to adult, when the odds are we'll never be able to afford a mortgage without help from our families.

All the while, older generations are on hand to pour scorn on our efforts and our woes, while ignoring the fact that their elders dismissed them in a similar fashion (yeah, baby boomers, we're talking to you).

It's no wonder half of us still live at home with our parents. It can be a pretty sweet deal - just remember to clean your shit up, keep the noise down and bring the washing in, and we'll all live together in harmony. But how long at home is too long? When does the sweet deal turn sour?

If Rotondo's anything to go by, the answer is 'eight years'. The case sparked public interest, which led to that awkward AF interview where Michael told CNN he doesn't want to live at home but doesn't want to look for another place - make your mind up, son!

But now, after a judge sided with his parents' decision to give him his marching orders, Rotondo has FINALLY taken the hint. He's spreading his wings (reluctantly, of course) and flying the nest. But he's not happy.

"That's it. That's the end of my relationship with them other than court proceedings. There's nothing more to say," he told the Daily Mail.

The family relationship is in tatters and Michael and his parents are no longer speaking, even though they've remained under the same roof. Talk about awkward.

Rotondo was seen packing up his belongings on Thursday with the help of a cousin, after he was given a Friday deadline from the courts. He says he's going to keep most of his stuff in storage and has booked an Airbnb for a week to see him over.

So, let that be a lesson to us all. It seems parents have limits and the live-at-home-kid agreement has an expiry date. Better go and get cleaning those dishes then...
